The day started with a nice fresh,crisp dawn with the sun burning off any remaining mist. We set up and started scanning when news came in of a Lynx being seen at first light. Then at 11:00hrs news came in from up the road that a Cub had been seen briefly out on the mountainside. It wasn't until 15:30hrs when news came in of 2 Lynx being seen together down the road, on the mountainside. We got down there and after a wait of 25 minutes it happened, like a Phoenix rising out of the ashes, sitting there like a sphinx in posture a female Lynx was sat on the edge of the cliff face looking down over the valley beneath. The action lasted pretty much til dusk with nearly 3 hours of sightings of both Female and Cub, sometimes next to each other in the scope but often parted.It was just a great moment which we all totally enjoyed.
Not the best video but you get the idea, more to come...
As the day was coming to an end Vincent an d myself had to walk back down the track to pick up some equipment that got left behind during the carnage of the Lynx sightings, whilst walking back I located a Lynx slowly making its way through the valley below us, the light was fading and it was one of those nice poignant moments in wildlife watching that just stays with you for a lifetime.
